New videos showcasing mockups said to reveal the look and dimensions of Apple’s upcoming next-generation iPhone 6 keep popping up every day, but there’s obviously a good reason: With each new look, consumers get a better idea of what to expect when Apple finally launches its new flagship iPhone this coming fall.
One of the latest additions to the long line of iPhone 6 mockup videos we’ve seen comes from Vietnamese gadget forum Techrum. A forum member visited a local shop that had a space gray iPhone 6 mockup in its possession, and he was able to shoot a quick video comparing the mockup to a gold iPhone 5s.
The biggest takeaway from the video is the reaffirmation that Apple’s next iPhone will seemingly still be relatively compact despite its larger display — if these mockups do in fact accurately represent Apple’s unreleased iPhone 6. This is particularly important where the phone’s width and thickness are concerned, since many Apple fans have been worried that a larger iPhone might be less comfortable to use with one hand.
According to a recent report from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a shockingly good track record, Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 will feature a larger 4.7-inch display, an upgraded processor, NFC and a new thinner design.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 6 late in the third quarter this year, and then an even bigger iPhone phablet will supposedly be released sometime in the fourth quarter.
